Jesuit mapmaking in China by Roberto M Ribeiro( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the early 1700s, Jesuit missionaries in China persuaded Emperor Kangxi to employ them to map his vast empire. Thus was launched the most extensive, scientifically based cartographic undertaking in the history of the world up to that time. Jesuit Mapmaking in China tells the fascinating story of that undertaking and the story of the subsequent struggle to have the maps published. It then reproduces the maps themselves as they appeared in a pirated edition in The Hague. This book will appeal to everyone interested in the history of China, the history of the Jesuits, and the history of cartography.0
